Who's Buddhist Now? Cher!

During a recent interview with Architectural Digest well-known singer Cher identified herself as a Buddhist---one "who should always be in after-school detention.":

“I’ve played around with Buddhism for years,” continues the actress, a devotee of the American Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön (“a genius in Sheldon Leonard’s body,” she quips). “As corny as it sounds, the soul of the universe, everything that I need, I can find in its practice.”

Wow, I never knew I had something in common with Cher!
Pema Chodron literally lifted me from the depths of depression, self-loathing, and resentment.

Pema saved me last year when my wife and I separated.
